Project Description

Boyle Construction is part of a Peron Development team converting the former Art Deco Bethlehem Armory into 55-60 apartments and light commercial space. The 33,000 SF Armory building sits on two acres in west Bethlehem’s Mount Airy neighborhood. The project’s current design development proposes 55-60 apartment units, with mixed-use commercial tech space within the former drill hall and offices within the existing Armory facility. The tech space will include 10,000 SF of incubator office space. An additional multi-story apartment building will be built to tie into the existing Armory and offer additional residential space.

On the National Register of Historic Places, the Floyd Simons Armory was built in 1930 and named after the first Bethlehem soldier to die in World War I. It stored military gear and served as a military training facility for the Pennsylvania National Guard. This development project will maintain the Armory’s historic preservation.
